MP and AM to Meet Council over Road Concerns

Delyn MP David Hanson and Sandy Mewies AM will meet members of the Gwernymynydd Community Council to talk about their concerns about the A494 and their attempts to communicate with the North Wales Trunk Road Agency (NWTRA).

Elwyn Owens who chairs the Council said:

“We contacted both our MP and our Assembly Member last November out of frustration. We have established a dialogue with Flintshire County Council about the minor roads around the village but when we get in touch with NWTRA we hit a brick wall.

“The Agency is responsible for the A494 that runs through the village and although we have tried to communicate with them over many years’ suggestions and requests for a meeting fall on deaf ears. We are concerned about speeding and the way in which indiscriminate parking in the Cadole area puts pedestrians at serious risk.”

A stretch of the A494 near to the Swan Lane junction was closed for several hours after a local woman pedestrian was seriously injured in a crash on Christmas Eve. She is still seriously ill in hospital.

Mr Owens added:

“At this stage we want to talk about how our concerns can be dealt with and we are hoping that David Hanson will support us in this. We fear for the safety of our residents and the Christmas Eve accident was a wake up call for us all”.

David Hanson said:

“I look forward to meeting with members of Gwernymynydd Community Council to learn more about their concerns and how we can best move forward.”
